BEEF GEEKS AND PROUD

WE’RE REBELS, FOOD LOVERS AND INNOVATORS,
CHANGING THE FOOD INDUSTRY ONE CUT AT A TIME

It all started with a steak, one eaten inAustralia to be exact – and more flavorful and tender than any we’d had back home. This steak sparked a realization: that as consumers, we want beef that not only tastes good, but that we can feel good about eating. So we founded a company to deliver just that.

Today, we’re a premium, packaged fresh foods brand currently focused on offering the best-tasting, highest-quality beef in theworldand empowering everyone to have an amazing eating experience, every time – with absolute transparency frompasture topackage to plate.
 

WE STRENGTHEN THE COMMUNITY IN THE MOST BASIC WAY

Beef plays an important role in the diet, one that is often missing in its purest, most nutritious state, in the diets of those less fortunate. That is not acceptable, so we’re doing something about it.

 

MEET THE BEEF GEEKS

LENNY LEBOVICH

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

I started Pre because I loved the idea ofdisrupting a massive industry that has been loath to change. The gulf between how the industry thinks, and what consumers want, is vast. Have to say, I love ourribeye when looking to indulge a bit, but day-to-day, oursirloin rocks. My hobbies include scuba diving, meeting people, political economy and Legos (with my kids). I began my career on Wall Street and ended up in beef. How random is that?

NICOLE SCHUMACHER

CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

My favorite cut depends on the season. In the winter, our chuck roast because I LOVEFrench Onion Soup,Beef Bourguignon and Barbacoa tacos. All other seasons I vote  New York strip, it's easy. Pre fuels my passion for real food. I indulge withHomer's Mint Chip Ice Cream or a bottle of Fisher's. My ideal weekend is doing anything with my family.

PATRICIA WILLMOT

Asking if I have a favorite cut is like asking which of my children I love the best! There’s one for every mood, weather condition and occasion. I love the slow-cooked chuck roast in cold weather, the perfectly portioned, delicious filet, a full-flavoredribeye on the grill,sirloinslices on my salad, 92/8 patties for hamburgers, 95/5 ground for tacos... On the weekend, I like time with family, a good book and being outdoors in all seasons.
